Undone Beauty: Marr Factory

The Marr Factory shows are a very special week on the New Zealand fashion scene. Intimate and high-energy, each designer/brand is free to express to a mix of media and public whatever they wish – current season or coming season – in whichever way they wish. The setting is an Undone favourite – Golden Dawn – where incredible designer cocktails are mixed each night and the models weave with poise in and out of the crowd and the bar.

This year in all cases bar Sylvester, which previewed Winter 16 (so a separate post coming tomorrow!), the shows featured SS15/16 pieces already starting to hit stores, so we thought a different take would be to present the shows from a pure beauty angle…
